This elegant two-three bedroom, two-bathroom loft home offers pristine living spaces, abundant light and private outdoor space in historic Little Italy.
The meticulous attention to detail is evident the moment you enter the 2,017-square-foot condominium home. Gleaming hardwood floors pave the space, while ultra-tall 12-foot beamed ceilings are highlighted by handsome track lighting and ample sunlight thanks to a row of west-facing windows. Living and dining areas are spacious and inviting, and the chic Valcucine open kitchen invites with a massive granite island and world-class appliances, including a Sub-Zero refrigerator and wine cooler, Bosch dishwasher, Thermador double-wall oven, and a six-burner Viking range with vented hood.
The desirable split-bedroom layout places bedrooms at opposite corners of the home. In the serene master suite, rows of convenient built-ins sit under a full-width window, and the relaxing en suite terrazzo tile bathroom includes a walk-in glass shower, separate Kohler soaking tub for two and dual-sink vanity. The second bedroom offers two sunny, east-facing windows and a large closet, and the nearby library/home office, outfitted with more built-ins and access to the private balcony, could easily function as a third bedroom. Another well-appointed full bathroom and full-size washer and vented gas dryer complete this sumptuous home's fantastic layout.
